2004 Cartlidge & Brown Rabid Red
"The 2004 Rabid Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Sirah, Syrah, Tempranillo, Grenache, and who knows what else. It exhibits a dark ruby color as well as a big, exuberant, fruit-driven, Australian Shiraz-like nose. The wine is nicely textured, fleshy, and fat, with a tasty, long, heady finish. It will make an excellent bistro/brasserie red over the next 2-3 years."
